Library Service in the Georgian Bay Region. Volume 3, The Orillia Public Library.
Bowron, Albert
In 1971 a study was made of the Orillia (Ontario, Canada) public library as part of a larger study of library service in the Georgian Bay Region. After a look at the history and composition of the community in general, the planners considered the history and present situation of the library building, the print and non-print collections, hours and staff, research periodicals and copying facilities, services to students and to local institutions, technical services, circulation procedures, services and charges to non-residents, and functions of the library board. In addition, the planners made a special feasibility study of bookmobile service. Recommendations were made concerning expansion of buildings and collections, especially non-print collections; additional funding and charges; enlarging the reference collections; increasing hours and staff; copying facilities; coordination of technical services with other libraries; circulation control and routines; and library board policies and documents. Tables are provided for (1) a comparison of Orillia's library services with those of other libraries, and (2) books, circulation, and expenditures 1965-70. (LS)
